Carolee Helena Seger

Posted By Wendy On January 30, 2014 @ 1:34 pm In Obituaries | 13 Comments


Carolee Helena Seger, 71, of Monroe, NH. Passed away peacefully, Wednesday, January 29, 2014 after a courageous battle with lung cancer at the Matulaitis Nursing Home in Putnam, CT. She was the beloved wife of Bruce O. Seger; they were married on August 11, 1986. He passed away October 10, 1999. Born in Rockingham, NH, she was the daughter of the late Adelbert and Helena (Andrewski) Lavalette.

Carolee became a Registered Nurse on June 1, 1966 and dedicated her life to the care and love for her patients. Carolee was employed in the Emergency Department of Day Kimball Hospital from 1973 to 1987. She continued her life’s work at WindhamHospital, Littleton (NH) Hospital, and ended her career in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, NH. She will be sadly missed by her many friends and professional colleagues.

A truly gentle and kind spirit, Carolee’s kind-heartedness and generosity will never be forgotten.  “Because Nice Matters” was one of her favorite sayings. She was especially fond of her Lhasa Apso, Baxter, who kept her warm and cozy on many cold nights in northern New Hampshire. Carolee enjoyed conversation with everyone she got to know and had many great laughs with her Thursday night quilting girlfriends. Although I am not sure much quilting ever got done.

Carolee enjoyed golf, the beach, playing board games with her grandchildren and working in her gardens. She enjoyed cooking for her friends and family and enjoyed traveling when her work schedule allowed. She often took many shifts from younger workers so they could be home with their families on the holidays.

Carolee is survived by her two sons and their families. William and Dawn (Menoche) Poirier of Thompson, CT. and Todd and Courtney (Mroczek) Poirier of Danielson, CT. Her beloved brother and his wife, Gerald and Carol Lavalette of PalmHarbor, FL. and numerous grandchildren, nieces, and a nephew.

The family is especially thankful for the care and compassion shown to Carolee during her stay at the Matulaitis Nursing Home. The loving and capable hands of her doctors, nurses, CNAs, housekeeping, and staff will never be forgotten. Her many friends in Monroe, NH also assisted the family in her care and we are truly thankful.

A celebration of Carolee’s life as well as final internment will be at MonroeCemetery in Monroe, NH at the convenience of the family. There are no calling hours. Donations in Carolee’s Memory can be made to the Cottage Hospital Oncology Department, 79 Swiftwater Road, Woodsville, NH. 03785. For memorial guestbook visit www.Gilman AndValade.com.

I was so sad to learn of Carolee’s passing. She was my daughter, Nicole Poirier Grow’s Godmother. My deepest sympathy goes to her sons, Bill and Todd, and their families. Carolee was such a kind and caring person, and my family has many fond memories of times we shared together many years ago.

Dear Family….so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I am so glad that I got to visit with her last fall. We had a few laughs over some of our antics both at work and out shopping!! We did work hard those many nights at the old DKH ER…….we did a lot of good work…and became a very good team taking care of our emergency patients. (even if I do say so myself!!!). May good memories that you both have help you through this difficult time. Take care ….Jan Dodge Alton
